Audio Interface Input Help

Tue Mar 16, 2021 2:54 am

Hey. New to Magic here, and still working in the demo version.

Excited by some of the possibilities so far, and have run into a big snag. My intention is to use Magic with multiple live inputs through an audio interface. With both my audio interface (RME Babyface Pro) and the RealTek microphone built into my laptop I get the error message "Warning: Couldn't open audio input device". I can get the RME's inputs to show using ASIO4ALL but Magic does not react to sound. It works fine when using a .wav file as an input source.

Hoping to prove a concept using Magic that will secure me enough funds to buy it. Please help!!

Very strange that you would get the same error on both your audio devices. I know for sure that the RealTek microphone works fine because we have a couple laptops with it here in our office.

Have you tried going to Magic's Help menu and selecting Reset All Settings?

Make sure that you haven't disabled your microphone in Microphone Privacy Settings. Your symptoms suggest that it is turned off.
